In light of the fact that Hunter ‘SicK’ Mims will be unavailable to play for the Sentinels in the VCT Americas competition, CEO Rob Moore has stated that the team would be signing a new player from the Valorant organization.
Moore has stated on Twitter that the Sentinels intend to add a new backup player for the VCT Americas. The league is set to begin on April 1, and every team is required to submit a roster that includes at least six players. An incident at a Ferrari car dealership on March 3 resulted in SicK being arrested on charges of criminal trespassing. SicK had recently returned to the active lineup of the Sentinels as a backup player ahead of the 2023 VCT season after spending some time on the sidelines due to mental health issues.
According to Esport news, he is still being held in custody at the Collin County jail in Dallas, Texas, and the amount of his bail bond has been set at $5,000. Furthermore, Moore responded on Twitter that the Sentinels are and always will be devoted to assisting the team’s players through any difficulties they may encounter. Everything about Hunter’s situation has been the same in this regard. Our mission is to be here for Hunter during this challenging time and offer support.
Sentinels Valorant roster:
- Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo
- Zachary ‘zekken’ Patrone
- Gustavo ‘Sacy’ Rossi
- Bryan’ pANcada’ Luna
- Rory’ dephh’ Jackson
On April 1, Sentinels will play their first match in the VCT Americas competition, which will be against 100 Thieves. After suffering a two-map defeat at the hands of eventual champions Fnatic, the squad was eliminated from the VCT LOCK/IN tournament in the first round.
After SicK’s release from jail and completion of his training, Sentinels will reportedly place him on indefinite suspension, as reported by Esports news. Also, it has been stated that Jimmy ‘Marved’ Nguyen, a former member of OpTic, is the leading candidate to join Sentinels. If everything goes according to plan, this will be Marved’s first competitive outing since announcing his intention to take a hiatus at the conclusion of the 2022 VCT season.
